2021 Golden Globe Winners
After 84 years we finally have another awards show to watch! I went 13/25 with my predictions which is pretty terrible. I usually get at least half right. Don't worry, I drank my shame in wine. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted again and they were wonderful as usual, but some of these winners tonight were...wild. Here are my thoughts. The winners are highlighted.
“Promising Young Woman“
“The Trial of the Chicago 7”
I would've loved to had heard Chloe Zhao's speech but my local news decided that delays only apply to football and just carried on with their bullshit exactly at 10:00pm. They were still listing the nominees when the program switched over. And it wasn't even breaking news! The audacity.
BEST MOTION PICTURE – MUSICAL OR COMEDY
“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm”
I went back and forth over picking Borat and Hamilton so much and pick wise, I'm glad I went with Borat. Isla Fisher looked so excited during this win. Someone on Twitter pointed out that this is the first award Hamilton has lost and it lost to Borat, which is sad and hilarious at the same time. Cohen thanked his body guard who prevented him from getting shot twice. Why are we nominating Gary Oldman for Mank again when this man endures this?
Emerald Fennell, (“Promising Young Woman”)
David Fincher, “Mank”
Chloé Zhao (“Nomadland”)
Regina King (“One Night in Miami”)
Aaron Sorkin (“The Trial of the Chicago 7”)
FINALLY another female winner. Fincher took another shot because he lost, and I hope he keeps that energy up all season. Zhao's speech was adorable and I hope she gets more wins under her belt this season.
BEST ACTOR – DRAMA
Riz Ahmed (“Sound of Metal”)
Chadwick Boseman (“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”)
Anthony Hopkins (“The Father”)
Gary Oldman (“Mank”)
Tahar Rahim (“The Mauritanian”)
I was prepared for Chadwick to win this and for me to feel sad, but I was not prepared for his widow to give such a beautiful speech on his behalf. That was so heartbreaking. They had done a skit earlier in the evening where they interviewed kids and asked them Globes questions and all of them recognized Boseman as Black Panther. This loss still hurts.
BEST ACTRESS – DRAMA
Viola Davis (“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”)
Andra Day (“The United States vs Billie Holiday”)
Frances McDormand (“Nomadland”)
Carey Mulligan (“Promising Young Woman”)
Vanessa Kirby (“Pieces of a Woman”)
I about fell off my couch for this one. Did anyone predict Andra? I thought Carey had this in the bag. Wow.
BEST ACTOR – MUSICAL OR COMEDY
Sacha Baron Cohen (“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm”)
James Corden (“The Prom”)
Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton”)
Andy Samberg (“Palm Springs”)
Dev Patel (“Personal History of David Copperfield”)
Cohen and Isla are so adorable. That made up for the fact that Dev Patel bailed on the zoom meeting so I couldn't stare at his perfect face.
BEST ACTRESS – MUSICAL OR COMEDY
Maria Bakalova (“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm”)
Kate Hudson (“Music”)
Michelle Pfeiffer (“French Exit”)
Rosamund Pike (“I Care A Lot”)
Anya Taylor-Joy (“Emma”)
I love Rosamund Pike, I do and she was great in this but I cannot fathom how Maria didn't win here when Cohen and Borat won in the other two categories? It had to be close, right? What is this?
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE
Sacha Baron Cohen (“The Trial of the Chicago 7”)
Daniel Kaluuya (“Judas and the Black Messiah”)
Jared Leto (“The Little Things”)
Bill Murray (“On the Rocks”)
Leslie Odom, Jr. (“One Night in Miami”)
Kaluuya was the first winner of the night and they immediately had technical difficulties before it switched back to him yelling "No, you're doing me dirty!" at his computer. Thank God they cut back to him and he gave a wonderful speech. I hope to hear more of those this season.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE
Glenn Close, “Hillbilly Elegy”
Olivia Colman, “The Father”
Jodie Foster, “The Mauritanian”
Amanda Seyfried, “Mank”
Helena Zengel, “News of the World”
Foster was a huge surprise as well and I'm just over here happy it wasn't Close. I wish it would've been Seyfried or Zengel, but hey, this will do. Jodie getting to kiss her wife on camera was a wonderful thing.
Aaron Sorkin (“The Trial of the Chicago 7”)
Chloé Zhao (“Nomadland”)
Florian Zeller and Christopher Hampton (“The Father”)
Jack Fincher (“Mank”)
Emerald Fennell (“Promising Young Woman”)
BEST ORIGINAL SCORE
Alexandre Desplat (“The Midnight Sky”)
Ludwig Göransson (“Tenet”)
James Newton Howard (“News of the World”)
Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross and Jon Batiste (“Soul”)
Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross (“Mank”)
BEST ORIGINAL SONG
“IO SÌ (SEEN)” — “The Life Ahead”
“SPEAK NOW” — “One Night in Miami”
“TIGRESS & TWEED” — “The United States Vs. Billie Holiday”
“FIGHT FOR YOU” — “Judas and the Black Messiah”
“HEAR MY VOICE” — “The Trial of the Chicago 7”Who will and should win: Speak Now
I thought Speak Now had this in the bag. Another surprise win for me, but it is a lovely song so I can't be mad about it.
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE
“The Croods 2”
“Over the Moon”
I know Soul is going to steamroll through this season and it's a great movie, but I just wanted Wolfwalkers to win so badly. Pixar has enough of these.
BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
“The Life Ahead”
“Two of Us”
Wow, an American film won Best Foreign Language. I'm still annoyed they put Minari here in the first place, but the director's speech was wonderful and his daughter was adorable. When Minari takes its rightful place among the best picture nominees at the Oscars, I hope Another Round reigns supreme.
BEST TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
The Globes went nuts for The Crown tonight. Rightfully so, what a season.
BEST TELEVISION SERIES – COMEDY
“Emily in Paris”
“The Flight Attendant”
My clown ass actually thought Schitt's Creek would miss here. lol
MINISERIES OR TELEVISION FILM
“The Queen’s Gambit”
This was such a tough category because other than Normal People, which I haven't seen, I really enjoyed all of these shows. I'm sad for Unorthodox because it's so powerful, but I loved The Queen's Gambit so much. I may or may not have bought a dress of Modcloth recently because it looked like something Anya Taylor Joy wore in that.
BEST ACTRESS TV SERIES – COMEDY
Lily Collins, “Emily in Paris”
Kaley Cuoco, “The Flight Attendant”
Elle Fanning, “The Great”
Catherine O’Hara, “Schitt’s Creek”
Jane Levy, “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist”
I don't think anyone else was going to come close to O'Hara. I really need to start Schitt's Creek.
BEST ACTOR – MINISERIES OR TELEVISION FILM
Bryan Cranston, “Your Honor”
Jeff Daniels, “The Comey Rule”
Ethan Hawke, “The Good Lord Bird”
Hugh Grant, “The Undoing”
Mark Ruffalo, “I Know This Much Is True”
Another win for Ruffalo. This was such a hard watch but he deserves every trophy he gets for this.
BEST ACTRESS – MINISERIES OR TELEVISION FILM
Anya Taylor-Joy, “The Queen’s Gambit”
Shira Haas, “Unorthodox”
Nicole Kidman, “The Undoing”
Cate Blanchett, “Mrs. America”

Shira Haas was robbed. I love Anya, but come on now. Shira was perfection.
